We were meeting some people for dinner and wanted to get out of our hotel room so we decided to try the Channel Wine Bar for a drink while we were waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. While we'd seen the place before, this was our first visit.

Some of the previous reviews mention food which was not available on our visit. There was an lengthy martini menu, two types of sangria, and a list of wines on a board near the door. None of the wines were unique or unfamiliar, but they were all very reasonably priced. The service was friendly and attentive.

I felt that I received my money's worth for what I ordered. For a place to sit and have an inexpensive glass of wine with friends, the Channel Bar seems to fit that bill perfectly.

The wines were just ok, but I'm a little spoiled when it comes to wine. It was a quaint little spot with a good feel. The cheese plate and hummus was fantastic. I'd go again, but don't go with a Napa kind of craving. Servers were fun although not all that knowledgeable about the wines. Nice for those nights you don't really feel like doing the whole dinner thing.

New addition to South Haven. To make it, the establishment will need to really up the quality of wines offered. A larger city visitor will be disappointed at the wine selection. The atmosphere is kind of neat, pine ceilings, nice seating, but the main draw - the wine - was mainly from Chile and not recognizable. There is beer and a full service bar. The concept seemed to be lacking a super star wine selection but maybe that's not the point of the business plan.

Finding good drink and food can be a challenge in this area. We experienced 'authentic mexican' served on flour shells with cheddar cheese... However, we were so happy to find this spot to enjoy a decent glass of wine for such reasonable prices!
The interior is snug, but a good escape from summer heat.

Tiny boring wine bar. Not bad to stop and grab a quick drink but nothing special. It offers no view of anything south haven has to offer. Maybe If the location was better they might be busier. You will be bored to death halfway through your glass of wine! There are many better places to spend your $$.
